I want to try differin as my acne is mainly blackheads/whiteheads which sometimes get inflamed, i also want to see if it helps any pore size/scars which i have.

Will i get an itial breakout such as with retin-a, because i keep putting off getting it although im sure it will help my acne/red marks better than my current regimen but im scared out of breaking out!

I started using Differin almost a month ago and have had the worst breakout ever. I'm debating whether or not to stop, just because it looks so much worse than it did before I started.

Hopefully someone who has been through the entire first three months of Differin can post their input! ;)

Differin works differently on different people. When I took it, I took it with an oral antibiotic. When you're on differen, I recommend a good moisturizer. My skin was really really dry when I was on it.
